The Canadian Mental Health Association Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge says it is “urgently” seeking a new space in Lindsay, Ont., for its REACH for Recovery Centre.

REACH — “recovery, empowerment, advocacy, community, and hope” — is a community-based day program for individuals with a mental health concern. The program promotes mental health recovery through educational programming that incorporates exercise, peer support, art, music, and more to help them gain skills necessary to be participating members of their home and community.

The program had been based out of a building on Lindsay Street for the past seven years, but the CMHA says in November it was notified that their lease at the location would be ending on Jan. 31, 2021.
